rings in the New Year in the role of innovation driver for the mobile telephony
sector by launching an all-new PDA. T-Mobile's Ameo is creating a new category
in the mobile device market, uniting today's computer functions, mobile
broadband transmission technology and telephone functions in an attractively
designed exterior. Thanks to its innovative concept the Ameo can be used with or
without its QWERTZ/QWERTY keyboard. Connected at the side to the keyboard's
magnetic strip, it can be easily attached. Whichever option is preferred, its
large-format color display, powerful processor, spacious hard disk, array of
interfaces, long battery life and many other features all add up to a stylishly
The Ameo, designed and manufactured by HTC (based on the HTC Athena reference design), supplies mobile access to almost all applications, information and connections commonly needed.
Including not only singleband HSDPA/UMTS and quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE but also
W-LAN b/g and Bluetooth 2.0, it offers users the fastest available mobile
transmission wherever they are, via T-Mobile's mobile telephony network.
With the introduction of Ameo T-Mobile continue its successful cooperation with
HTC, the world's leading provider of Microsoft Windows Mobile devices, as
partner. T-Mobile set standards already in the past by providing its customers
with innovative PDAs like MDA Pro and MDA Vario II.
T-Mobile's new multi-talent is a must-have for business users such as managers, sales and
service staff, architects or assessors, as a convenient alternative to juggling
mini-laptop. The Ameo tracks down the most efficient mobile connections to
corporate networks or the Web in almost any location. For exceptionally fast,
simple E-Mail communication, the Ameo offers both the Blackberry E-Mail push
service and Microsoft's Push E-Mail solution. With web'n'walk Ameo also makes
Internet browsing very comfortable.
Significantly smaller and lighter than a mini-laptop, the Ameo is scarcely
larger than PDA phone models such as the MDA Vario II. With the latest Windows
Mobile 5.0 operating system plus Office applications pre-installed, its computer
power could be compared to a small laptop. The Intel Bulverde 624 MHz processor
and generous RAM for applications and data enable multiple programs to be used
in parallel without compromising on speed.
The 8 GB hard drive is roomy enough
for plenty of information, and the built-in "G Sensor" "saves" data if the
device is dropped accidentally and can be used for internet navigation instead
of scrolling VGA touchscreen. Users can run presentations directly via the
projector and TV outputs. The 3-megapixel auto focus camera with flash delivers
high-quality photos and film. And the Ameo also features integrated GPS module,
transforming it into a sat-nav system when used with the appropriate software
such as T-Mobile NaviGate. When work is over, the Ameo comes into its own as an
entertainment center, with integrated media player and stereo speakers for
playing your favorite MP3s and more.
The Ameo is a joint effort of T-Mobile
and HTC and will be introduced first to market globally in an exclusive version.
